Kathy says this will be the last Quora ever!
Thank you Kathy for always providing an entertaining start to Monday mornings. I know I'll miss the Quora but I clearly understand the challenge of finding things to ask every week. In fact, last night (during a little insomniac period) I thought "hmm, I could take over the Quora" but I thought that there would be NO WAY I could come up with even ONE question each week, much less a few.
So here's a digital round of applause for Kathy! Yay Kathy!
On to the Quora:

*Have you asked your kids to do something you wouldn’t do?
 Well, if by 'kids' you mean the animals who live with us, then yes, I do ask them to do things I wouldn't do. Mostly eat kibble and go to the bathroom outside.

*Do you understand: Football, Bridge, or Cricket?
I understand Football. I don't understand Bridge but think I could if I wanted to (I don't think I do). I have tried to understand Cricket but it is challenging. I do understand Rugby though.

*Have you talked to your family about Organ Donation?
I think we both signed up for organ donation when we got our Oregon driver licenses.

*Did you knit something that you thought you might not be able to this year?
I never tempt fate but planning out knitting beyond a few weeks, so I guess the answer is no.

*I-phone or Samsung?
I-phone but I am one of those luddites who really only uses it for the phone. And pictures. I am not a good or eager text-er, much to the chagrin of the rest of the world.

*Do you put bows or trinkets on your packages?
We wrap our gifts in fabric that we can reuse every year, and so the 'ribbon' tends to be yarn or stretchy gold cord (like they used to have at Marshall Field's). So no bows, and probably no trinkets unless it is part of the ''theme' of the gift.

*Do your pets get a Holiday treat?
Yes the dogs get greenies often and this year they'll get (toy) Gingerbread men wearing shirts that say 'bite me'. Calypso is still nursing and eating hay--he hasn't started on pellets or apples or carrots, so I don't know what to do for him! Tink and Atom will get apples. Jessie Cat will get--oh who knows what? I won't move her off my feet at night on Christmas, how about that?

*Do you use headphones, earbuds or nothing when you watch something on your phone, computer or tablet?
Depends. If I'm at work, nothing. If I'm at home and Tim is working at home, then earbuds.

*If you could take a craft/knit/crochet class in January for free, what would it be?
Oh that's a great question. Maybe weaving? On one of those big old looms?

*Have you ever made a traveling knit? (you knit part and send it on?)
Yes I have. I remember one that I did got very very held up at someone's house after it left my house--I'm not sure if it really ever got finished.

Kim, Thanks for always participating in the QUora. IF no one had played along it would never have taken off!!!
If Calypso's still nursing, then he'll get whatever momma gets in the best way!

Weaving sounds like an interesting class.

I'd love to have a big loom.

I love reading everyone's responses. I think if you left the cat on your feet it could bring a lot of happiness. hehe.
